I dunno if that's that true anymore. Brazil is basically collapsing, our vaccine rollouts been pretty decent.

We sure do have a lot of anti vaxxers though.

Sorry, I can't take this seriously when the right seems to be in constant fear of anything Fox News tells them to be afraid of

At least liberals are "scared" of stuff that actually exists.

#1.  I am embarrassed, being a Michigander and all.

#2.  Try living with these pseudo tough guy, big pickup driving, mask holes.  There is a guy in our little town who has 20 Trump flags/signs, as well as a freshly repainted shed or barn that spells Trump and "Fark Biden".  I have been so baffled over and over by people doubling down with their stupidity.

Why do Republicans appear to be downright petrified of things that are incapable of causing any physical harm (e.g. same sex couples getting married) but refuse to be afraid of things that are proven to maim and kill people (e.g. an airborne virus that's killed millions around the globe in about a year)?

so your mileage may vary here.

The first allows them to oppress others; the second oppresses them.

Tough guys invincible to Covid are few and far between.  Remember, one of the reasons they haven't been exposed to people who've suffered serious or long-lasting symptoms is because their lives revolve around things that don't matter to the rest of America.  Their economic and social bubbles are smaller.  They still get Covid, but they haven't seen a business go under because the 50 year old who ran it died after being pulled of a ventilator to make room for someone who had a better chance of surviving. It does happen, but they don't care what happened to the small town next door, only their own.

They can fark right off. We have these selfish, ignorant assholes in Indiana too. They recently went to a couple school board meetings near me to angrily argue that their children shouldn't have to wear masks in school. Bonus: Indiana gave no prioritization for vaccinations to teachers, so they're not all vaccinated yet. When these shiatbags started their crap last month, even fewer were vaccinated. Yet the teachers are already teaching the kids in-person despite the risk. That's not good enough for these plague rats. They demand no masks, too.

I'm really annoyed that the school board gave them so much time to rant. They also let them into the building for the meeting without masks. Stop coddling these farks.

The GOP-controlled legislature told the Dem governor ("That Woman From Michigan") that she could not put into place *any* new restrictions without going through them first, so she is basically letting the GOP kill off the population of Michigan and will, quite loudly, tell them, when they come crying to her asking her why she didn't do more, that all those extra deaths are on them, not her, they got their freedumbs, and they can bury the consequences.

Hudsonville mom Jeanette Schuiteman told reporters she has "deep concerns" about mask-wearing at school, which she said is "physically not healthy."

Hudsonville mom Jeanette Schuiteman is an idiot. I pity her children. Go far away for college, kids.

This is like that whole Let Them Play Michigan movement.  When they wanted to get the restrictions on sports lifted, I saw news interviews where they promised to go by all of the protocols, they just want to play sports.  Well, they got the restrictions lifted, and are now pursuing the following (according to their Gofundme for legal costs) - stop the masks, testing, and quarantining (and therefore forfeits).  That is literally how you prevent the spread of this disease!  They promise to do right by their fellow Michiganders to get what they want and then move the goalposts right into the graveyard.
